About this item

Research on health disparities — differences in physical and mental health caused by inequalities based on social class, race and ethnicity, and gender — is rapidly growing. Furthermore, the medical community is increasingly recognizing the need for health professionals to understand how various social and cultural factors affect physical and mental health (the MCAT will have a new section on social/cultural influences on health and health care starting in 2015). Health, Medicine, and Society intends to fill the significant gap in the market of medical sociology textbooks with a fresh approach to medical sociology.
